The Beast has been delivered. "Der Gigant von Rodenstock". Maybe "Thanatos" is too unkind, as my lady friend suggested for a name, "Dalek" was mine.
It feels heavier than my 31mm Celestron Axiom LX. It is definitely more solid. I will weigh it & photograph it soon. No shiny pretty silver or chrome, but a rugged beauty in semi gloss gunmetal gray barrel, and matte top. With grooves for a good grip & a safety undercut on its nose!
Effective eye relief is just enough wearing glasses to see the whole FoV. The Rodenstock's raised eye lens rim is rubber, so I can put my glasses lenses gently on it, to just see side to side. No SAEP, and eye positioning is easy, like a Meade SWA 40mm, though the Rodensstock gives just enough space not to be in my face.
So to use, and I have to rule out certain scopes as its weight would wreck their focusers, The Beast is tall as well as top heavy. My Moonlite on the 120 Equinox will just be OK, with a Clicklock. TV & Tak focusers likewise. Sky-Watchers 2" maybe at vertical. The others - Vixen, Bresser, Celestron C8 with 2" visual back & sturdy diagonal may be too feeble.
I'll try filter fitting shortly.
